“Good Option In Historic Frejus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Tucked away on the south side of the church just off the main square, this small restaurant was very welcoming (we had no reservation) and the service was prompt and helpful throughout our visit.

The restaurant comprises two rooms, the outer room has four, well-separated tables for two, the inner room has no windows, is more like a cave and includes seating for larger parties as well as couples. If you go as a couple, I recommend the outer room, closer to the street (and natural light). Decor is modern.

We took the three course 27 Euro lunch, fairly pricey but the quality and presentation of the food was very good. An amuse bouche of fresh cold tomato soup to begin with, with a cold strawberry soup dessert the main highlight. Of two fish main courses, one was prepared precisely, the second ( a different variety of fish) slightly overcooked.

I notice some earlier reviews of this restaurant were quite negative. as of June 2013, I found nothing to support these criticisms.

“Fabulous French food in cozy surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

This restaurant is recommended via the Michelin Guide and was also recommended by some friends - and it met our expectations!
The food was excellent and beautifully served. Only minus was that when we asked the waitress which wine she would recommend for our food selection she had no answer.
However, the wine was excellent as well and can be bought at the local vineyard called Chateau Paquette.

“Great restaurant away from the shore"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2009

L'Amadandier is nestled in Old Frejus, just off the town square and opposite City Hall, far from the commercialiasm of Frejus Plage. The food was excellent from start to finish -- unlike many places that only have good appetizers or main courses. It was very reasonable given the high quality -- about $50 each all in -- and had a great atmosphere with an arched ceiling. All told, it seated less than 20, so you must make reservations. Service was efficient although not especially warm. Highly recommended for a fine dining experience at a modest price.
